The third lot of scanned slides.
Please click on photos to enbiggen.
This was the harvesting plant for the 1978 harvest at Fosters Farm in Wudinna SA
This was what they used in 2008, just a quick 30 year jump there!!!
Moving the grain has also taken a leap forward too.
Looking down from the cabin of the header this is a section of the 40 foot thresher where it all starts to happen.
More accurately this is where it all starts to happen, love those curves.
Ooops the last 4 photos were not scanned from slides.
I also love the old lights on the steps of Parliment House in Melbourne Vic.
This is known as Natures Window it overlooks the Murchison River near Kalbari in WA
Just room for Julie to put her head through a hole in the rock here.
This small bulldozer isn't much bigger than a mid sized car is featured because of its name.
I have some better photos of this plant somewhere, but I haven't come across them yet,
its known as either the devil bush or the wolf bush because of the dried growth.
This is a very large dam on the Franklin River in Tas.
Downstream view of the dam wall which is about 300 feet high, this dam is used to generate electricity through a hydro/electric system.
A very tenacious tree growing from a crack in the rock of a water course in a NSW National Park, I wanted a better photo of this but when I returned the following year it had been washed out by a flood.
